Smooth Move



Bellway helps Essex buyers with painless part exchange


Studies show that the average UK resident will own just three homes during their life cycle and this figure is falling as home ownership becomes less achievable.

Buyers just stepping on the property ladder will be excited with this new phase in their lives, but the second or third move becomes more stressful as there is usually a house to sell which can be difficult and costly.

Jane and Michael Crouch, 55 and 57, were experiencing this frustration when they found their ‘perfect’ four-bedroom house by Bellway in Mascalls Park, Brentwood. The couple were keen to move quickly, but frustrated by a series of issues when it came to selling their three-bed house close to Havering.

Bellway came to the rescue by offering the couple a solution in the form of its Part Exchange scheme. The obstacles that were in the couple’s way simply disappeared and the move progressed with speed.

Jane Crouch said: “We found a house that we desperately wanted, but we were finding it hard to sell our current home. When Bellway suggested their part exchange scheme, it seemed like a no brainer and from then on the move really was plain sailing.”

The painless Part Exchange package is designed by experts to help make buying and moving simple and it’s a totally free service. Bellway provides a fair offer for the seller’s home based upon an independent valuation and there are no estate agent’s fees or advertising fees to pay – it really is a totally stress-free move and can save home buyers thousands of pounds.

Mascalls Park is a contemporary development of three, four and five-bedroom new homes in Brentwood, set in the grounds of a former hospital and surrounded by beautiful woodlands and farm land.
The Crouch’s were attracted to this development because of the low density of the estate and the access to the countryside on their doorstep. Jane explains:

“We were looking for a new home that is an easy commute to central London, I work long hours in the City and needed a good commuter location – Brentwood is ideal for this. I also wanted somewhere with access to the outdoors and Mascalls Park couldn’t be better. Once the final few houses are completed, we will have a footpath from the back of the estate that takes us all the way to Great Warley Country Park. I have a grandchild and will love being able to explore the area with him as he gets older.

“Michael and I were also attracted to this development because of the low density – so many new developments are crammed together but Mascalls Park is not like that at all – you have a real feeling of space as you move around the estate and no one is overlooking anyone else. To be honest my new house is just perfect!”

The homes at Mascalls Park are designed to appeal to a variety of audiences, including families and professionals working in London, it also features an abundance of greenery, open spaces and a woodland walk.

For families there are some well-regarded schools near the development including Warley Primary School and Holly Trees Primary School for younger children, and Brentwood County High School for older pupils.

In contrast to its lush countryside setting, Mascalls Park is just a five-minute drive from Brentwood town centre, where residents have access to a great selection of independent and chain stores along High Street and in the Baytree Shopping Centre.

Mascalls park is a comfortable 20 minute walk from Brentwood Railway Station and from there regular services run into Stratford and London Liverpool Street in as little as 33 minutes.

With a selection of five bedroom homes left available at Mascalls Park prices start from £1,350,000 to £1,550,000. For further information, please visit www.bellway.co.uk or call 01245 259989.
